of finance is going to come into washington the week before the debt ceiling is hit and they're going to pressure you to cave. i actually disagree with andrew here. i think that the scenario that mcconnell laid out in that obama is willing to take is a much smarter approach because as of now, raising the debt ceiling, the responsibility for it is diffuse and spread across congress so they can pass blame and pass responsibility around so they might actually not do it. whereas, if the main responsibility is on the president, then whatever party that president is in, he is always going to do it. it would still allow the congress, if they desperately wanted the country to default, by a two-thirds vote, they could override the veto, and they could push the country into default. it still allows him to blow everything up if they are really passionate about it. it takes this off the table, and it does it in a much more rationale way. >> we've learned that as the fiscal cliff showed us, this is all about giving cover to the more raucus members of your caucus, right? this allows john boehner to
